We loved everything about Bay Villas Resort! We were on the top floor in a two bedroom self contained apartment. The stairs area only short flights, so mo problem for us. The only down side is that we shared a mini foyer with the next room (12A and 12B), so you need to make sure you pull your door closed before leaving the main door. I think this so they can still book the other room as a hotel style room, or people can book a three bedroom and it is then kind of all in one.
Our room had everything we needed, and was very spacious. Was nice being able to spread out and not feel like we were tripping over our luggage or each other.
Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We all got good sleep here.
Location was great - we have young kids so hired a car to drive everywhere. Close to town but limited parking at times. You can park in the back street. At night, the street at the back was used as a race track, so try to steer clear of the back part of the venue if this bothers you.
Two separate pools, one heated and one not. The pools were never too busy which was great, and there are some sun lounges to lie on and watch the kids. Two separate BBQ areas as well (one gas, one electric). They have some supplies there like oil, salt, paper towel, tongs etc so it made it nice and easy to cook up a feast and enjoy on the deck.
One of the best parts about the stay was the woman at the reception. She was always happy to assist and gave us lots of tips of things to do and places to go. She even told us that if we were going to the supermarket, then there was an underground carpark that you access from the back of Coles. This helped us as immensely as it was hard to get a park in the main drag!
I will be recommending this venue to anyone I know who is traveling up this way.
